The centerpiece of the Facing MBC Together campaign is a digital resource designed to enable those living with MBC to create a private support group to positively impact their well-being and/or lessen some of the burden of their day-to-day tasks. The resource features numerous tools, including a customizable calendar that allows supporters to fulfill a loved one's everyday requests such as driving them to treatment, walking a pet, delivering meals, or picking up groceries; a real-time video channel that lets people connect live, one-to-one, or in a group chat; a health update blog that may be used to share medical updates or other information about the people and family living with MBC; and a photo and video gallery, by which supporters can upload visual images to lift their loved one's spirits, offer encouragement, and rally support.
"I'm proud to be part of Facing MBC Together, and also glad to have access to the campaign's resources, especially during this difficult time," said Stephanie, a nurse who is one of the patients profiled in Facing MBC Together. "The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting our access to cancer treatments, clinical trials, and medical attention, and for many of us our mental health needs are being ignored. Living with MBC has helped me to deal with panic, uncertainty, and isolation. Facing MBC Together, with its tangible resources, is invaluable for staying organized and getting extra support where needed."
